Expertise Profile

Dr. Black’s research interests include establishing records of baseline climate variability against which we can assess modern and future climate change, reconstructing patterns of decadal- to centennial-scale ocean-atmosphere variability during the Holocene and late-Pleistocene using the marine sediment record, the calibration of existing and new paleoclimate proxies, and exploring carbon cycling in the oceans with respect to the geologic record.
